26" frames - like rocking horse sh@#t

I've been looking for a change of frame 26" and after putting a massive dent in the downtube it's probably needed soon. 

Seems like there's not much available, like the rest of the industry. 

I've looked and tarty and trials addict. Where else?

How about trendcycles.ch? They're not EU at least. Mostly echo, jitsie and rockman for bare frames.

Cheers I do like the look or the Jitsie frames but the snail cams make me want to vomit, never used them but hate the idea. Any experience?

Snail cams are fine just make sure you get the notched ones

jitsie frames 116mm hub size just for you to bear in mind 

and most frames these days are high bb

so you may need/want more spacers under your stem or even a different stem

Snail cams seem to work for people under like 185 lbs. Heavier people universally hate them. (Or at least I do) I've sold frames I loved the geo on just to get something without snail cams.

I’ve never had a problem with them and I’ve been 240 lbs

I've never understood how people don’t get on with them it’s literally loosen your axle bolts and click either side till the wheel is straight and chain it tensioned then tighten back up

As always, can't really stress enough how important it is to clean and grease your axle threads and axle bolt threads if you're experiencing wheel slipping issues. Your axle bolts should be taking most (if not all) the load, so if your wheel is shifting pay attention to them more than your cams. Serrated axle bolt washers are a good shout too (as is putting a bit of grease under the bolt heads to eliminate any binding between the bolt head and the washer).

The threads on M6 axle bolts aren't huge, so if they're pretty dry you'll get that tight feeling way before you would do if they're greased. We looked into it ages ago and found the %age difference and it is hefty.

EDIT: This is all based on either having notched snail cams already, or having notched some smooth cams...

Exactly how I feel!
